it turns out, I originally discovered this problem through the get with
substitutions. It's too late to muck with it now but if you are really
interested I will generate a test case showing the failure or else prove
I was hallucinating.
My current workaround is to look for a %( in every value returned and if
so do a string substitution.
value = base.get(section,item, 1)
if value.find("%(") != -1:
value = value% self.interpolation_symbols
yes, it is as ugly as a roadkill toad but it gets the job done. I've
spent away too much time on this problem for this particular project. I
think we all know the feeling.
